Make My MMO: May 30, 2015

Make My MMO

This week in MMO crowdfunding news, Square Enix pimped out 2-D action MMO hopeful Dragon of Legends as part of its Indie Collective showcase. In slightly less positive news, Greed Monger’s development team was “forced to admit defeat” and informed the game’s community — which had coughed up more than $100,000 in Kickstarter donations — that it was shutting the project down.

Oh, and Das Tal released a ton of updates for its ongoing Kickstarter drive.

The rest of this week’s MMO crowdfunding roundup is just past the cut.
